The Department of Physics at UCF utilizes the Educational Testing Service (ETS) Major Field Test in Physics as their exit exam. Undergraduate students at UCF will be informed by the Department of Physics if they are required to take the test during their final year at UCF.
The ETS Major Field Test in Physics is computerized and consists of approximately 70 multiple-choice questions. Test takers will have two (2) hours to complete the test. No retakes are allowed.
The Physics Exit Exam is given in the Fall and Spring semesters. Students will be notified to test during their senior year of the program.
Students who believe they qualify for academic accommodations should contact Student Accessibility Services (SAS) prior to registering for the test to inquire about options available (email@example.com; 407 -823-2371). Students will need to submit the Third-Party Exam Accommodations Request Form to SAS. The process to review documentation may take up to ten (10) business days to determine if the accommodation request is appropriate for approval.
Note: Test-takers seeking to test with accommodations must schedule their appointment time for Monday-Friday at 12:45 PM or earlier.
The cost for the Physics Exit Exam is covered by the Physics Department.
Test takers must review the University Testing Center’s policies prior to test day: Items such as outwear (hoodies, sweaters, jackets, pullovers, cardigans, any form of second layer clothing), watches, and electronic devices are not permitted into the test room. UTC does offer lockers at no additional cost. The full list of UTC policies can be found here.
After completing the registration process, check your email for the test registration confirmation. If you do not receive a confirmation email, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Rescheduling an Appointment
Test takers may not reschedule their appointments without documentation of emergency circumstances. Students arriving more than 15-minutes late may not be able to test.
Upon completion of the exam, you will be able to view your scores on‐screen and you will receive an automatic test completion email that will include directions on how to view your scores online. Scores from the ETS Major Field Test in Physics will be provided to the Department of Physics. There is no pass or fail grade for the exit exam, and students may not retake the exam.
